TBI is one of the major epidemics around the world. It causes many deaths and disabilities every year. Blood from hemorrhages is an important biomarker. Susceptible Weighted Imaging (SWI) is most sensitive MRI sequence for detection of blood. Veins and arteries undergo lot of pressure and stress during the event of trauma. It can easily cause a vessel wall to break down. Depending on the type of blood vessel (Artery or Veins), recovery varies significantly. Location and severity of the insult also plays an important role. The main objective of this study is to investigate the spatial relationship between hemorrhagic bleed and different types of vessels, e.g. veins vs. arteries, as well as its relationship with TBI patients clinical and outcome information
